Restoration Works Archive
Paucity of documentation linked to the preservation status and to the restoration activity executed
in the last century has developed during the last twenty years an increasing understanding of the
documentary accounts on this kind of intervention.
This section of the archive collects all the documents produced by the restorers who have worked
for Santa Croce, especially during the last ten years.
The production of this kind of documentation is an investment that has a double purpose to certificate
the preservation status of the work of art and the type of intervention it underwent, and to constitute
the basis for possible future interventions.
During the last years, restoration activity has given occasion to carry out other kinds of investigations
and examinations on the restored works of art, that have enriched the documentary property and the knowledge
of the painting techniques as well as the time spent to achieve the results.
These scientific outcomes are used also to give in-depth examinations and illustrate curiosities to the visitors.
